The whole apartment is adorned with ornaments and paintings from Florentine history and arts, which give it a very special atmosphere.

The wooden ceiling, the arches made of brick and the rustic style of the kitchen give you the very warm feeling of old Florentine houses.

Hello, I'm Debbie, I'm a psychologist and I work with childrens.
I've been living in Italy many years ago, then I came back to the states, but I took this apartment
and it has always been my home away home.
My friend Tiziana, who lives in Florence, manage it for me. She will welcome you and she will be there for anything you need.
Great location in quiet residential neighborhood with good local restaurants. Close to bridge over river to city center accessing Florence museums. The apartment was an authentic Florence apartment, very clean, offered guide books of the city. The host was punctual in meeting us and helpful answering questions. It was nice to sit outside on the patio with a glass of wine.The breakfast bar down the street fueled us with espresso and pastries for the day.
We--two couples--spent three nights at this lovely apartment and enjoyed it immensely. The bedrooms are both good sized, and there are two bathrooms, which makes life just a little easier. The living room is comfortable, but the big treat is the lovely, quiet terrace in the back. An excellent place for sunset cocktails or a lovely lunch! We were pleased to find water and wine waiting for us, as well as coffee---after an international flight and subsequent train from Rome, we were weary, and felt very welcomed. Debbie and Tiziana provided lots of information about neighborhood restaurants, bus lines, shops and local points of interest. And the apartment is within walking distance of all the major sights. A big thumbs up!
The owner uses this apartment when she is in town and it is filled with tasteful florentine art and objects. It is very spacious with two separate bathrooms and very well equipped. We loved eating dinner on the deck in the back listening to the twitter of the chimney swifts and enjoying the rosy hues of the evening sky. Having a washing machine to use was wonderful. No street noise in the bedrooms to keep you awake. Not many tourists in this neighborhood. Neighborhood seemed safe. Large grocery store around corner at base of park. D bus runs from park (piazza Tasso stop) to train station and to many tourist locations. Most historical sites within ten to twenty minute walk of apartment if you like to walk. Apartment manager, Tiziana, speaks excellent English and could not have been better to deal with. We would love to go back.
We have just returned from a wonderful 4 night stay in this charming, clean apartment in the Ultrarno area of Firenze, located close to Piazza Santo Spirito. The apartment is very spacious and beautifully decorated in Florentine style, which added to the feeling of being absorbed in the Florentine culture. The living room/dining room is very large with high ceilings. The kitchenette is charming and well stocked with dishes, pots and pans and utensils. There is also a large pantry. The bedrooms are large, as are the 4 piece bathrooms. The master bedroom has a wardrobe along a hallway leading to the beautiful terrace - a great place for breakfast before touring the city. The on-suite bath is lovely, decorated in beautiful Carrara marble. The apartment is located in a non-touristy area near neighborhood stores and a lovely neighborhood park. It's also an easy walk to the Ponte Vecchio and central Firenze.
If you are looking for a charming, spacious place to stay in a typical Florentine neighborhood, this is it!
My family just spent a lovely week in this terrific Oltrarno apartment. It is very spacious, plenty of room for a family of 4 - no sharing a bathroom with your kids! The kitchen is well-appointed, everything is clean, and the decor is nice. There are plenty of guidebooks to help you navigate around the sights of Florence. The grocery store around the corner is so convenient, and within two blocks, there is a bakery, butcher, fresh fruit market, pizzeria, two nice restaurants (Al Tranvai was good), a gelateria, and best of all, the wine-refill store (La Rinfusa - the Vermentino is super!)
It's walking distance to all the museums, but it is in a quiet area with no tourists! Best gelato is less than 10 minutes walk - Santa Trinita on the Oltrarno side of the bridge of the same name. Have sandals, shoes or boots custom-made at Francesco da Firenze, on the way to Santa Trinita.
The photos are exactly what you get - big living room, marble baths, terrace out back. There's a washing machine, and it was warm enough that the laundry dried quickly on the provided rack, out on the terrace. Tiziana was available and responsive. I would not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone. It is a real gem, and well worth the price!
What a great apartment in an Oltrarno residential neighborhood! Very comfy 2 bedrooms, 2 baths with a well equipped kitchen. The apartment is exactly as pictured and is in easy walking distance to Santo Spirito, Boboli Gardens, Ponte Vecchio. One block away from a park, market, & restaurants. Tiziana was very responsive, friendly, and helpful.
